Boo to American engineering!
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

American engineering at its best... Not good enough for the mony (£322). It has a Plastic mount, plastic focus and aperture rings. Front glass is actually attached to focus ring so image moved about in the frame when focusing, so is useless for video. Image is soft around the edges for a good 15 percent of the image. Even the lens cap is pants, it has little ribs on it to keep the very thin plastic ridged, which would be fine however the ribs actually touch the front glass leaving marks and will eventually scratch the glass. Very poor build quality overall. The Sigma 4.5mm is a better lens by a long way. I know it's more money if you can find one ( as they have been discontinued ) but they are super lump of glass.

It's a toy.

Horrendous, and I mean horrendous lens flare. If you are considering this for astro work, just don't. This used to be reasonable value lens, every week the price keeps going up and up. It is now in the territory, or exceeding the price of Samyangs etc. This lens doesn't come close to a Samyang lens. This is a cheap lens, with pretty terrible optics. It is not for serious photography. Used to be worthwhile when it was cheap just to expreiment with. It's a hundred quid lens at best.

Fun - but limited use
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

A fun lens but very limited usage. I found I could not edit exposure on my computer if I got it wrong when taking the shot. It can be difficult to keep your feet out of the shot. Also the lens frame bounds the image. It doesn't work with the camera's autofocus, but I was happy with that as it made me use manual focus more that I normally do, which was good practice.

Works well, but front lens rattles.

Great lens works well, although the front part has some movement and rattles.
